homemade oreos


make 25 to 30 sandwich cookies

for the wafers:
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
1 1/4 sticks butter, room temp.
1 large egg

for the filling:
1/2 stick butter, room temp.
1/4 cup shortening
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

preheat oven to 375 degrees. to make wafers, mix dry ingredients then add butter and egg.   place small pieces (1/2 inch) of dough onto parchment lined baking sheet and slightly flatten with moistened fingers.  bake 9 minutes.

to make filling, combine butter and shortening in mixer.  add sugar and vanilla and beat on high for 3 minutes.

to assemble the cookies, pipe the filling using a zip lock bag with a corner tip cut off.  it just takes a few minutes this way and there is plenty to make double stuffed.  they are soft, but get crispy like traditional oreos if stored in the fridge.   

recipe from the smitten kitchen.
